I didn't know this is your blog too! :)
I wonder how you managed to shoot that picture? Did you use tripod?

I could not leave a comment on your other blog because of your comment settings. Here you have 'Anyone', URL/Name option, no problem.

Sun rings always look so magical to me. The hand is a great touch too.

Simple and effective.

This is an interesting effect. I suppose it is the atmosphere that reflects the light in a circle. It makes me curious.

I have just discovered your blogs. You must have had the opportunity to travel a great deal. Your photos are from all over the world. All quite good. I will be following you now.

That's cool. And I like the hand in the middle!

I didn't know about all the refugees, but when reading what you wrote I thought, of course that makes sense. We have very much the same issue here with Mexicans, as you've mentioned. It's a very sad and complex issue. Thank you for the information, I found it very interesting.

I count five, yup they're all there! Nice shot!
